GCE Advanced Subsidiary Level and GCE Advanced Level
MARK SCHEME for the October/November 2011 question paper for the guidance of teachers
Paper 3 (Advanced Practical Skills 2),maximum raw mark 40
This mark scheme is published as an aid to teachers and candidates, to indicate the requirements of the examination. It shows the basis on which Examiners were instructed to award marks. It does notindicate the details of the discussions that took place at an Examiners’ meeting before marking began,which would have considered the acceptability of alternative answers.Mark schemes must be read in conjunction with the question papers and the report on theexamination.
Cambridge will not enter into discussions or correspondence in connection with these mark schemes.Cambridge is publishing the mark schemes for the October/November 2011 question papers for mostIGCSE, GCE Advanced Level and Advanced Subsidiary Level syllabuses and some Ordinary Levelsyllabuses.

1 (a)
Measurement for 
in range +0.10
V to +0.90
V, with unit. [1]
(c) (ii)
Six sets of values for 
scores 6 marks, five sets scores 5 marks etc. [6]
Incorrect trend –1.Major help from supervisor –2, minor help –1.Range: [1]
values must include 0.33
or less and 4.7
or more.Column headings: [1]
Each column heading must contain a quantity and a unit where appropriate.There must be some distinguishing mark between the quantity and the unit.Consistency of presentation of raw readings: [1]
 All raw values of 
must be given to the same precision and at least 2 d.p.Significant figures: [1]
+ 1) must be given to the same as or one more than the s.f. for 
 Calculation: [1]
+ 1) calculated correctly.
(d) (i)
Axes: [1]Sensible scales must be used, no awkward scales (e.g. 3:10).
Scales must be chosen so that the plotted points must occupy at least half thegraph grid in both
directions.Scales must be labelled with the quantity which is being plotted.Scale markings must be no more than 3 large squares apart.Plotting of points:
 All observations in the table must be plotted.Check that the points are correctly plotted. Work to an accuracy of half a smallsquare.Do not accept ‘blobs’ (points with diameter greater than half a small square).Quality: [1]
 All points in the table must be plotted (at least 5) for this mark to be scored.Scatter of points must be less than ± 0.04
V on the
axis from a straight line.
Line of best fit: [1]Judge by balance of all the points on the grid (at least 5) about the candidate's line.There must be an even distribution of points either side of the line along the fulllength.  Allow one anomalous point only if clearly indicated (i.e. circled or labelled) by thecandidate. There must be 5 points left after the anomalous point is disregarded.

(d) (iii)
Gradient: [1]The hypotenuse of the triangle used must be at least half the length of the drawnline. Both read-offs must be accurate to half a small square or better in both
directions.The method of calculation must be correct.Intercept: [1]
Either:Check correct read-off from a point on the line and substitution into
. Read-off must be accurate to half a small square in both x and ydirections. Allow ecf of gradient value.Or:Check the read-off of the intercept directly from the graph
a = value of gradient,
= –(value of intercept). Do not allow a fraction. [1]
Value of 
is in range 1.0
V to 2.0
V, with unit V. [1]
 [Total: 20]2 (a)
Value of 
in range 0.01 to 0.05
mm, with unit. [1]
 (b) (i)
Value of 
in range 5 to 15
mm. Raw reading(s) must be to nearest mm. [1]
Evidence of repeated readings of 
Percentage uncertainty in
based on absolute uncertainty of 1
mm [1]
(but if repeated readings have been taken then the absolute uncertainty could behalf the range, unless this is zero).Correct method used to find the % uncertainty.
Correct calculation of 
using candidate’s values from
 (d) (iii)
At least three measurements of 
used. [1] Average calculated correctly, with unit. [1]
Second value of 
. [1]
Second value of 
increases as
 (f) (i)
Two values of 
calculated correctly. [1]
Sensible comment relating to the calculated values of 
testing against a [1]criterion
specified by the candidate..
